30 Weeks? Really?

Yesterday SSG hit the 30 week mark and we're both pretty amazed that there are around 10 weeks left in her pregnancy. I can't speak for her but I have had moments of "Oh crap. Really? So I am going to be responsible for a small human being in like 10 weeks?" I wouldn't say I'm panicked but it's a bit more real now and slightly overwhelming. It may also be everything to me right now feels overwhelming.  It's been almost 2 months of being unemployed and I've had some dark days. If I pause to think about it I know that we'll be okay and it will all work out but at times this positive outlook gets a little buried...buried under my frayed nerves and impatience. Trying to find a way to deal with my stress has been a challenge to say the least. I'm still exercising and I'm sure it helps, but just not as much as I wish it would. I try to stay busy but being in an apartment has it's limits and lack of projects. I have a sizable painting project that will be starting over the next 2 weeks so that should keep me busy and earning some good under-the-table cash. 

Something we do have to look forward to is we're headed to P-Town on Sunday morning to stay with some friends for a couple of days. It will be nice to get away and we love P-Town. Of course we're on a tight budget but our friends live right on the beach so we're hoping for some sun. Plus I'm so pale, I'm practically glowing. 

On the nursery front we ordered the last of the items which are an area rug (chocolate brown) and the bedding. The rug should arrive this week but the bedding is going to take a couple of weeks. SSG can't wait to get her hands on that! I'm sure after a wash they crib will be all made up.

Hope everyone had a Happy 4th of July!
